Drivers and support for Dimension 4700 motherboard.

Postby Killapalooza on Mon Jan 12, 2009 5:45 pm

Hey there!
Mint is up and running fine on my Dell Dimension 4700 Motherboard, everything was fine, even the network drivers, except for the sound drivers.

I can't find the linux drivers for the integrated sound on the mother board at all.

When i go into the sound preferences and select autodetect from the dropdown menu, and press test i receive the following error:
audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink: Failed to connect stream: Invalid argument


Any help is appreciated, I just have the desktop running as a media server on my colleges network.

Figured it out.

Always remember to check to make sure you didn't turn off the onboard sound in the BIOS like 6 years ago when you used to have a sound card.

lesson learned.
